A WhatsApp voice note which Premier League footballer Emiliano Sala sent to friends before his plane vanished has emerged. In it, the 28-year-old seemed scared for his life.
In a voice note sent from the light aircraft which disappeared on Monday night in the Piper Mailibu near Alderney in the Channel Islands, Sala told them to send someone to come find him if they don’t hear from him. He sounded calm but exhausted.
He said in Spanish in the audio recording:
Hey guys, how is it going? Brother, I am really tired now. I was over in Nantes sorting things out, doing this, doing that.
I am now aboard a plan that seems like it is falling to pieces. I’m going to Cardiff now, crazy, and tomorrow we get going. I will train with my new team tomorrow.
The striker, who was recently signed to Cardiff for a whooping sum of £15 million, said in a separate voice note that came later:
How are you guys, all good?
If you do not have any more news from in an hour and a half, I don’t know if they need to send someone to find me. I am getting scared!
The Argentine who used to play for Nantes completed a move to Cardiff City on Saturday.
